Not Out of the Woods

Pay up
Pay down

They own you
Wild Tiger
Captured and caged
Put on display
Poked and prodded
Teased into being ferocious
But
Not too ferocious
Or precocious

No, that will not do
Not for us
Not for you

We like you in the rough
Prowling the sand
Stalking the green

But take more than your
Share of white women?
Oh, that is simply
Obscene

And we won't have it
Not from the Tiger we tamed
If you want to indulge
In the treasure of the
Flesh

Go play another game
These hypocrites
Don't swing that way.
